i keep being taken with these numbers. i guess i knew conceptually people made $270 million a year in income, not wealth, income, and they pay like 18%, which is a little bit above the cap gains rate. we have been able to point out is about the rate that a person cleaning these offices at night gets, has to pay, about 18% working poor. >> this is one of the things where i don't think they have done a very good job of actually ringing the register. the president went after the grand deal looking for rate flattening and loophole closing and the great big thing, he wasn't able to bear down the way he had been for a couple weeks, couple months before on the bush tax cuts and whether they need to be suspended. they dropped that and went for something grander. they'll come back to that. item, that's not a card they're playing. >> they're saying, yeah, they told the democrats and obama totally missed the chance to force the republicans to vote, again, on those taxes including the one you're talking about. now what the white house is saying, don't worry, we didn't do it now.
